"A writer of unusual emotional strength, Cervantes uses the material of her own life to write poems that speak to everyone. . . . For an understanding of personal courage, it's a great book. Cervantes' command of her art is exciting, and her ability to draw the reader in is sure. What I wanted to do after finishingEmplumadawas to read more work by this author: let this be the beginning of a beautiful career." --The New Woman's Times Feminist ReviewCervantes, Lorna Dee is the author of 'Emplumada', published 1981 under ISBN 9780822953272 and ISBN 0822953277.
